Is it just me, or is hot chocolate the most wonderful thing ever? In fact, if I had to choose between living with Eric or my warm chocolatey goodness I would probably choose Eric, but I'm sure there would be times when I would wonder if I made the right choice.
I promised my new South African friends I would give them some recipes. Here is one that is perfect for children since it is very sweet, doesn't require any milk (mine was all used up this morning on bowls of cereal) and makes enough for a family. If you have milk, it does make it richer, but you will probably want to use more than 6 1/2 cups. Because this recipe is a little too sweet for me, I often add one or two cans of evaporated milk--- it also makes it creamier. If you like your chocolate a little darker, just add more cocoa.
1 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/2 Cup Cocoa
1 1/2 t vanilla
6 1/2 Cups Hot water
Stirring constantly, mix everything but hot water together in large pan over warm heat. Gradually add hot water, stirring to make smooth. Heat to desired temperature~ do not boil.
